Equity Lifestyle Properties - Barchart's Chart Of The Day

|Includes: Equity Lifestyle Properties, Inc. (ELS)

The Chart of the Day is Equity Lifestyle Properties (NYSE:ELS). I found the stock by sorting today's New High List for frequency in the last month, skipped over the stocks that didn't have positive gains for the past week and month then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 1/3 the stock gained 8.37%.

Equity Lifestyle Properties, Inc. (ELS) is a self-administered, self-managed, real estate investment trust.

Right now there is still a flight from growth stocks to income stocks. I caution you that the herd is usually late to the party so if you have it hold it and look for an exit point when the momentum stops.
